Following last week's announcement of Budget 2015, we’ve gathered together a round-up of news, opinion and analysis on the effects to the creative industries, from freelancers to small businesses and organisations:
Small and medium businesses:
"Corporation tax has been slashed and the employment allowance increased. But will that be enough to counter the impact of Living Wage hikes on the nation's small firms?"
Arts and culture:
"The Arts Council will continue to make the case for public investment in arts and culture with government across the summer."
Tech and Digital:
"The government will invest £23 million in six "Next Stage Digital Economy Centres". The money will go towards developing centres at UCL, Swansea, Newcastle, Nottingham, York and Bath."
